Librivox recording of Beyond Good and Evil, by Friedrich Nietzsche.

First published in 1886 at Nietzsche's own expense, the book was not initially considered important. In it, Nietzsche denounced what he considered to be the moral vacuity of 19th century thinkers. He attacked philosophers for what he considered to be their lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of Christian premises in their considerations of morality and values. Beyond Good and Evil is a comprehensive overview of Nietzsche√Ęs mature philosophy.

Subject: Not as good as I hoped...
I may be misjudging this one, because I haven't listened to the whole book and I'm not very familiar with Nietzsche. (Up to now I've only listened to Librivox's version of The Antichrist.) It strikes me as the sort of book that requires some background and/or careful reading to be worthwhile, and that may be one reason this audiorecording lost my interest very early on.

However, in this recording I find that several of the readers read carelessly, without evident comprehension; too drily, without passion; with thick foreign accents; and/or with mispronunciations. No offense meant to the volunteer readers, but I wish someone would rerecord chapters 2, 5, and possibly others. Any takers?
